It’s that time of year again! What do I mean? Well its getting hotter and especially so, it seems when I am leading worship.
For those of you who don’t know me I am a guitarist of sorts and tend to lead worship from that instrument and when the church is fairly full, and the sun is out then… well to put it politely I perspire!
I was thinking about it the other day and thinking that actually it is not bad thing to get in a sweat for Jesus!
Do we sometimes underestimate the perseverance and stamina needed in the service of Jesus. The reality is that sometimes the work of the gospel, work that honours Jesus is just plain hard work. Yes rewarding work but hard too.
So keep running the race, keep going!
“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58 ESV
